We're leaving Sunday, June 3rd, arriving in Taipei on the 4th. I'm working on where to stay in Taipei that week. I have several leads on apartments within a 5 minute walk of MRT stations. We'll head south most likely on Friday. I have a place picked out to stay on the beach at Kenting. There's also some places that we want to visit in Ping Tung. We'll spend the night in Tainan Tuesday and meet Hudson on Wednesday, June 13th. We'll take the HSR back to Taipei that night. I'm working on another apartment that has two beds that is close to an MRT stop once again. AIT appointment Thursday. Sightseeing in Taipei Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Go home Monday, June 18th.
I was on the phone for a little over an hour with the airline tonight reserving our flights and getting Hudson's one way ticket back. Complicated stuff! The representative on the phone apologized over and over that she had to put me on hold so much. I laughed. Lady, we've waited a long time to get to this point. Being on hold with you for an hour is the easiest part!
Hannah said a few really sweet things today. She told me that Hudson can sleep in her bed if he's scared because he doesn't know us yet. She also offered to teach him how to ride a tricycle. I get all teary-eyed thinking about what a great big sister she's going to be. I'm also relieved that she'll have someone to play with at home. There's only so much hula-hooping, jump roping, hide-and-seek, and ball throwing that I have patience for.
